RZA: Explains Vision For Next WU Project | Saying 'Never Fully Displayed' Their Power
 
he wants them to get back to 'rehearsing' for performances by prepping for live shows like a 'play'.....then do a stretch @Vegas...lol


Wu-Tang Clan released their fifth album 8 Diagrams in 2007, after the death of Ol' Dirty Bastard, and since then the collective has been focused on their own solo projects. But with the 20th anniversary of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) approaching next year, RZA already has a vision for the perfect reunion album and accompanying shows if everyone else is down.


Ghostface Killah recently told MTV News that he's recorded tracks that could potentially appear on this reunion album, adding that he's willing to let RZA take the reins. Though the Abbot is currently focusing most of his energy on directing films, he's already given thought to the reunion.

"I think Wu-Tang is an extremely talented group of people, immensely, and knowing the power that we have, I feel like we never fully displayed it," he tells MTV News. "It's always been spurts. It's never been a concentrated laser-beam focus [except] maybe the first year or two, when it was just me driving that ship but I think that now it's become more of shotgun effect. It's just scattered, and it hits targets but I would love for us to go back into a laser-beam focus and to put out not only a recording, but [also] a live show that's as entertaining and enhancing as the mind power we give."


RZA stressed that although the group is praised for their lyrical prowess, they've never fully explored their potential as entertainers. "People hear our records and they see movies in their heads, and then they see us on the stage in all different clothes, two guys ain't there and this one got drunk," he said, explaining that in their earliest days he rented studio space so they could properly rehearse and put on solid shows.


"They saw us like a real showcase. It was like a play that I put together and once we got famous that all just disappeared," he continued. "My idea was always to have that play with props, but because we were so underground we never took it to that pop level, to where you have a real stage manager, set design and all of these things that make the entertainment be not only audio but also visual."


While Ghostface has already pledged his allegiance to the reunion project under RZA's guidance, other members like Raekwon have yet to fully jump on board, but things are looking promising. "If life gives us the chance to come together again and do it, I would love to do it in that way, where it's just a spectacular event," RZA concluded. "[It would be] something that after we're done, Vegas may call us and say 'hey, we'll take it for a year,' because entertainment should send you away with stimulation through your ears and your ears, and if you're really good your soul."

IMO they wasted the Return to the 36 Chambers title on ODB's album. If the new Wu-LP was called that it would be so nasty.

Rehearsing
 
I think it was very mature of RZA to speak on rehearsing live shows...Too many of todays mc's think that all they need to do is get on stage, cuff their nuts, mean mug the crowd and yell a few slick rhymes into the mic...Alot of cats think they are "naturals"; like they too good to practice...Shits sickening; its immature, disrespectful to the art and fans that buy tickets...Personally I can't remember the last live show I spent bread on...In terms of live shows, the culture is really lacking...Its nice to see live bands be incorperated but cats need to bring more character out on stage and be more theatrical and its ok to do a few choreographed b-boy two-steps lol...Actually the last dope show I seen was Red and Meth a few years back the came to my hometown Pontiac, MI...Wasn't shit corney about they show but they did have a couple movements that by my eye were definitly synchronized but the shit came off dope...Same with Ghost when he would come thru wit his Unit, it looked to the un-trained eye like the show was spontaneous but I could tell they had somewhat of a routine...

Even the best most God-gifted artist practice their set...Shit aint gotta be corney...At its best, a live entertaining show will appear to the fans that its all spontaneous but it will have been rehearsed and tightened up with room left for spontaneous flurries

Wit WU's collective catalog and personalities, their set has limitless potential to be the stuff of legend...I mean seriously of epic proportion...Like some real historical entertainment shit

I could go on and on cause just the tought of a WU live show Extraviganza done the right way gets me pumped up...Shit would be utterly rediculous

Peace
